Anyone know where an American (like me) can get Iranian-grown tea?

Does anyone know where an occidental – such as myself – can purchase/acquire some Lahijan (read: Persian) tea? After having read about it, I’m REALLY eager to try some. A blog article depends on it.

Oh that sounds intriguing. I don’t have the answer but if I find it I will let you know and if you find it let me know because I would like to try it as well. Thx!

There is a review on steepster, but I could not locate the company on the web. Maybe someone else will have better luck.

Yeah, I saw that too. The Lahijan one. Thanks. I found a source. :-)

Ohh, Persian tea is one of my favorites. If your article really depends on it, I can send you some. However, here is a brand that I sometimes get tea bags from.

Get their Special Blend teas (with Cardamom).

Thank you, Anna. Can’t do teabags on principle for this. And I’m receiving some from another source. Much appreciated, though.
